    Nice job Al...... and Judy! [​IMG]

    I usually do stuff like that on a weekend fill the smoker smoke. I will usually have some chicken on my lower grill, and then a mix of beef and pork on the top grill. One item will be dinner that night, something is usually getting sliced for lunch meat, and then the rest is left big and vacuum packed for dinners throughout the week.
  3. Going on the list of To Smoke! Looks like awesome sammies! Thanks.

    I also was wondering what the best cut of meat was to do roast beef. Its a thing of beauty! This goes on the list for sure. I have got to get me a slicer. Fantastic Job AL.

    Looks delicious Al!!!

  7. I saw your post and ran off to get an 11 lb. tip roast to smoke for eats during the AFC Championship game this weekend.  (Go Steelers!!) I am SO looking forward to it...and the game too...but certain it is not as pretty a cut as your roast.  Nice work!

    is it safe to eat meat only taken to 135? i thought you had to get to 160 for all types?
  14. USDA says 145º for Steaks and Roasts.  You'll probably get about 5º +/- of carry over if the roast has been on the heat for 4-1/2 hours like Al's.  

    Can't speak for anyone else, but I prefer my roasts  - especially the one's I'm slicing for sammiches - on the rare side.

    Here's the list. plucked from the USDA:  (

    USDA Recommended Safe Minimum Internal Temperatures

    • Steaks & Roasts - 145 °F
    • Fish - 145 °F
    • Pork - 160 °F
    • Ground Beef - 160 °F
    • Egg Dishes - 160 °F
    • Chicken Breasts - 165 °F
    • Whole Poultry - 165 °F

    Yes it's safe, if the roast has not been probed, injected or in any way pierced. If is is intact muscle tissue you only have to get the outside 1/2" to 140 degrees in 4 hours.

    The only thing on this thread that's not safe is Al getting his fingers too close to the slicer, while Judy is trying to slice that good looking beef up!

    Get outta there Al !!!!  [​IMG]

    Al,  I made a tip roast like you did. The only thing i did different is put different seasonings on it and it's a smaller roast.2.5lbs. I smoked it for 2.5 hours. The internal temp was 149. I took it into the house and let it sit for about 10 mins and just wanted to try it. So i sliced alittle piece and it was tender but the smoke flavor was very strong. This is my first attempt at smoking. I put hickory chips in my MES-30 smoker like 3 times. About every 40-45mins. Did i do it to many times? I think i did. Not sure. I will put it in the fridge and let it sit. If it is to strong iam pitching it. Im not giving up. I know it takes time to perfect stuff. Thanks for your input. Dennis

    If you cut off the end piece it will have more smokey flavor. The next piece will only have smoke flavor on the outer edge. I don't think you used to many chips. Did you have the top vent all the way open? You need to get the air circulating and the smoke out of the top. Were you getting billowing white smoke or just a small amount of smoke? You don't need much smoke, almost invisible, if you can't see it but you can smell it, it's good.
